Description

Gr 4–8—This attractive, child-friendly primer brings many of Western civilization's major

players from the Middle Ages to the present day to entertaining life. Artists' birth and death dates,

cartoon portraits, and very brief biographies are provided, while representative examples of their

works appear on opposite pages. Easy and engaging themed activities and quirky facts about

some of the artists help make this title particularly appealing to young readers, though no source

notes or bibliography are included. Informative essays are interspersed throughout, including an

introduction about the meaning of art and its ancient origins and a final note about the

contemporary scene. Of necessity, an anthology must omit some major figures, and only one

woman, one non-European, and one African American are included. Also, the small font may

discourage younger readers. Still, the colorful reproductions are quite well known, explanatory

notes with arrows highlight salient details in the artworks, and the museums in which they are

housed are noted. Often, quotes from the artists themselves are used, which shed light on their

craft. This title will be useful for students in art classes or for art history units.—Carol Goldman,

Queens Library, NY Read more An all-too-brief introduction to art for the younger set.Alexander

and Hamilton have previously teamed up on titles in the wonderfully accessible and affordable A

Child's Introduction to? series. This lively and kidcentric entry highlights 40 big names, mostly

European and male artists (Michelangelo, Pierre-Auguste Monet, Diego Velázquez, Vincent Van

Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí, etc.), in a series of two-page spreads grouped thematically.

The book's handsome design captivates with an inviting cover and appealing 10-inch square trim.

Though very heavy on the classics of European painting and sculpture, Alexander's accessible

and readable text effectively combines with Hamilton's fluid, ink-and-watercolor vignettes and wellchosen

reproductions of 'signature' works. Further enlivened by intriguing, informative sidebars on

theory, movements and techniques, it also features many related hand-on projects. A few very

small nods of recognition to Asian, ancient Greek and Roman, Egyptian, African and Native

American art are offered?though at 96 pages one could hardly expect an inclusive, definitive

resource. And it is light on diversity: Mary Cassatt is the only woman receiving a two-page spread,

and Jacob Lawrence is the sole African-American painter. But then the only other Americans

among this artistic Top 40 are Winslow Homer, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol.Limited scope

notwithstanding, this is terrific for browsing, thinking, dreaming and art-making. (index, timeline,


removable coloring sheets) (Nonfiction. 9-14) Read more See all Editorial Reviews
